— A corn maze in California has been so treacherous to people going inside that many have been forced to call 911 to get out. The police in the area get multiple calls per day to help people escape the madness.

“Don’t people freak out and just go through the corn?” asked Callahan. “Isn’t that what happened in ‘Field of Dreams’? They went right through the corn.”

Replied Dennis: “But maybe you’re heading out into the field.”

“At what point do you say, ‘I’ve got to call 911’?” asked Minihane.

“When the sun goes down,” Dennis said. “Those mazes, they tend to be confusing.”

“I’ve never done one,” said Callahan.

— A British poll has found that 65 percent of people who have had various cosmetic surgeries end up wishing they hadn’t had the procedure. A larger number of people now also regret having a sex change than people did 10 years ago, as the poll said it’s close to one in four people.

“Sorry, Bub, it’s a little late,” said Dennis.

“I don’t think you get a mulligan on that one,” replied Minihane.

Said Callahan: “It’s probably illegal to tell people that they might regret it.”

Former tennis player Renee Richards is one of the many who have said they aren’t exactly happy with the results of a sex-change procedure.

Said Minihane: “There’s a lot of these examples, which I can understand. I think whatever makes you depressed, I don’t think gets changed with the surgery.”

— Mountain Dew has a new flavor of a drink that tastes like a classic American snack food. The new “Dewitos” drink combines the liquid of Mountain Dew with the flavor of Doritios.

“I thought this was a joke,” said Callahan.

Replied Minihane: “No, it’s real. It’s all too real.”

“They’re taking the page from the Fritos on the pizza,” Dennis said.

“I don’t like Mountain Dew,” Minihane said. “I like Doritos, but I would never want to drink Doritos.”

Replied Callahan: “You can’t knock it ’til you try it.”

We continued our discussion of boys playing girls high school sports.
The guys opened the show by discussing the awful performance by Cam Newton on Monday Night Football.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— There was report that Led Zeppelin’s lead singer Robert Plant turned down an $800 million offer to reunite with the band to preform a 35-date, three-city reunion tour. The report has since been taken down from the Daily Mirror website and the hosts agreed it likely wasn’t true to begin with.

“I call B-S on that,” Dennis said.

“That is absolutely untrue,” Callahan added.

Minihane isn’t a fan of the band in general.

“By the way, I know you guys probably disagree, but I think Led Zeppelin is one of the most overrated bands in history,” Minihane said.

— ‘The Newsroom’ on HBO premiered Sunday night with the episode surrounding the events of the Boston Marathon bombings. For the most part it was accurate, except for one mistake where Watertown was pronounced “Water-ton.”

“Watert-ton!” Dennis yelled. “But, compared to — if you watched the entire thing — compared to all the details they got correct. The headline on the New York tabloid that said Bag Dad that was wrong. John King’s saying ‘We have a suspect.’ They got all that stuff right. They had the hospitals right. Boylston Street right. They showed the four hospitals in the middle. All of that stuff, no, every single detail with the exception of calling Watertown, Water-ton, they got right.

— A man in a California movie theater was maced for allegedly asking a women to turn down her cell phone. The report said when the man tapped her on the shoulder, she ‘€œflipped out’€ accused the man of hitting her and threatened to call the police. She then uncapped a bottle of mace and sprayed the man.

“There’s a lot of this lately,” Callahan said. “There’s the guy who got a beating because he asked the women to shut her kid up in the grocery store, walking to his  car and just pummeled him. There was the fight over a slice of pizza where a guy just got beaten. A lot of this going on.”

Minihane then recalled a similar experience at the movies.

“One time, a couple years ago, a guy was talking on his freaking phone,” he said. “It was during the previews, but still. Just hang up. Is it really that important? Can you just leave?”

Here are the highlights from Monday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— An ex-Navy SEAL is claiming to have killed Osama bin Laden during a 2011 raid in Pakistan. Other SEALs are not pleased with Robert O’Neill’s public statements, but he continues to take credit for the high-profile kill.

O’Neill talked with Anderson Cooper on CNN this past weekend, saying bin Laden “died like a [expletive].”

“A lot of the ex-SEALs have a big problem with anybody doing an interview, writing a book, any of it. It’s like unwritten code that you don’t go public,” said Callahan.

Replied Minihane: “I’d do it if I were a SEAL.”

“That’s the problem, these guys retire, even after 20 years, they don’t have a lot of money coming in,” Callahan said. “They make more money than you think because they get the special pay for explosive duty, front combat, all kinds of hazards. But when it’s over, it’s over.”

The hosts ran a clip of O’Neill on CNN with the ex-SEAL describing how bin Laden cowered in fear as he died.

Asked Dennis: “Did he give any details? Like, was he cowering on the floor saying, ‘No, no, no, no’ ?”

“Did he mention the human shield, hiding behind one of his wives?” asked Callahan.

— A New York couple is in trouble with the state government for refusing to host a same-sex marriage on their farm. In 2012, Robert and Cynthia Gifford refused to perform a same-sex marriage on the farm where they perform wedding ceremonies and hold receptions.

The gay couple complained to the state officials, who said the Giffords broke New York law. For their punishment, the Giffords owe the state $10,000 and another $3,000 to the couple for “mental anguish.”

“That is frightening,” Callahan said. “That is a chill wind blowing there.”

Asked Dennis: “Why does George Orwell’s name come to mind?”

Replied Callahan: “Prediction: in 10 years, it will be a hate crime to be against gay marriage. They will be able to arrest you.”

“It’s approaching that now,” said Dennis.

“I don’t care if you’re for, you’re against or whatever,” said Minihane. “But if some couple owns the private property, I don’t understand it.”

— This week at the box office, Disney’s animated “Big Hero 6″ took the top spot at $56 million. “Interstellar,” Christopher Nolan’s space thriller with Matthew McConaughey, finished in second with $50 million.

Despite the hype, the hosts didn’t seem to be excited for “Interstellar.”

Said Callahan: “I’ll see it on a plane like I did ‘Gravity.’ That’s how that movie is meant to be seen — on an 8-inch screen.”

“I have zero interest, none,” said Minihane.

Callahan had a prediction for what he believes will top the box office this week.

“This week, No. 1 in the box office is going to be ‘Dumb and Dumber To,’ said Callahan. “I have a good feeling.”
